Wearable robots can be used to either augment, train, or supplement human motor function. Examples of such robots are exo-skeletons, bionic prostheses, exo-suits, and body worn collaborative robots.

Wearable robots

The wearable robotics laboratory will be used for development, testing and evaluation of these wearable robots in a safe and real-life environment. The lab will also be the home of teams that will compete in Cybathlon competitions. The Cybathlon is an international competition for disabled competitors allowed to use bionic assistive technology.
